recycled Christmas crafts

I’ve been really really busy lately but I fitted in the whole one minute it takes to make this DIY snowglobe made from recycled materials.  This snowglobe makes a fantastic recycled Christmas crafts ideas, and the good thing is all the items you need are things you probably have lying around the house.

To make this recycled Christmas craft you will need:

A clean and dry jar and lid

Some salt – I used a mix of sea salt and table salt.  Sugar would also do the trick.

Some blue-tac

A Christmas decoration (I used an old tree decoration and a tree from a previous year’s Christmas cake – hoarding for the win!)

Method:

Affix your decorations to the bottom of the jar using the blue-tac.

Add a few spoonfuls of your salt (or sugar).  You could also add a spoonful of silver glitter to the salt/sugar if you have any to hand.  Sadly I didn’t.

Pop the lid on.

And there you have it: a DIY snowglobe that’s perfect for a last minute (quite literally!) gift or decoration.  I plan on making a few more before Christmas to arrange in clusters on my mantlepiece, to create a snowy Christmas wonderland!
